If you don't know the D.R. & Quinch comic strips by Alan Moore and Alan Davis you really ought to - anarchic fun about two alien delinquents with a liking for beer, fast cars, man-eating fish and nuclear weapons. They've been collected by Titan books, amongst others.
The first of these stories has them going back in time to meddle with Earth's history (not to mention its evolution and geography) for some pretty dubious reasons; it occurred to me that it might be fun if one of the stops they made on that (or another) trip was Sunnydale.
Things I'd like to see:

The fourth season of NCIS: LA includes a story arc in which Russian sleeper agents hid nuclear weapons in strategic locations across the USA at the height of the Cold War, and continue to hide them in the present day.

What if one of the hiding places was in Sunnydale, a centre for high-tech industries in the seventies and eighties, and the location for at least one secret military installation in later years? What if the family of one of the key Scoobies or an associate is involved?

The obvious candidates are Willow, Xander, Oz, and Cordelia, all of whom are Sunnydale natives...

When Willow tries to resurrect Buffy, her spell happens to be cast at exactly the same moment as another in a neigbouring dimension - the spell to resurrect Voldemort. The Death Eaters are expecting their leader - what they get is a REALLY angry Slayer, who has just been dragged back from heaven. Meanwhile Voldemort wakes in a coffin, without his wand and with no idea where he really is, except that he's now buried alive and wearing a poorly fitting black dress...

Take it from there and have fun with it. Any pairing or none, but Buffy is an adult, won't be over being dead any time soo...

West Wing S4, several months post Chosen. Spoilers for West Wing S4.

Senior White House officials know roughly what happened in Sunnydale, and Molly O'Connor, Zoe Bartlett's bodyguard, is one of the new Slayers activated by Willow's spell. Naturally there's a fear of supernatural involvement in her murder (or injury if you want to keep her alive with Slayer healing) and Zoe's kidnapping. The Initiative is ordered to participate in the investigation, and if possible get the help of the Slayers.

Things I'd like to see:
- Giles meeting the British Ambassador, Leo, and other ...

BtVS S6 AU, Crossover with The Shield or any other LA-based crime show - When Buffy was killed the Buffybot wasn't repairable. A few days later Buffy's body is stolen from her grave, and although the Scoobies eventually recover it from the demons who planned to use it (to end the world, of course), Giles takes the decision to have it cremated to prevent any recurrence. In the arguments about this he learns of Willow's reanimation plan and proves to her that Buffy is in heaven.

So Sunnydale has no Slayer, no stand-in, and a growing demon problem. Giles uses his own backup plan, and Cou...

Weird idea I had after some discussion of the "Xander's 'Evil' Twin" episode...

There's an idea called Twin Towns, which began in Europe after WW2, in which two cities of roughly the same size and similar interests (e.g. industrial towns, mining towns, etc.) are "twinned" with each other. Typically they are in different countries, and the general aim is to promote peace, education, etc. For example, Cambridge (UK) is twinned with Heidelberg in Germany and Szeged, Hungary. The web page below explains the origins of the idea. Usually twin towns exchange cultural stuff (museum exhibits, ...

The West Wing episode Shadow of Two Gunmen introduced National Security Advisor Nancy McNally. What if she was related to Xander's friend Jesse McNally, who vanished a couple of years earlier? And what if Jesse, like many other vampires, killed members of his family before he was staked?

Before she got the job the FBI and other agencies would have investigated every facet of her life. After she was appointed press and political opponents would be looking for any oddities. What if there were unsolved murders in her family's background? How does this affect her career, and how do all th...

I learned today that there was a BtVS character who owned a VW beetle in canon - Jenny Calendar.

What if it was wasn't just any old VW, but Herbie, the Love Bug?

How would Herbie react to his owner's murder? How would the Scoobies react to a car that seems to have a mind of its own? And how will Angelus find out what a big mistake he's made...?

Any rating, humour preferred, but PLEASE try to come up with an original way for Herbie to deal with the situation.

If you want to justify Herbie turning up in Sunnydale, maybe Jenny buys a can of paint and some decal...

Ziva learns that she has a relative in the USA - her cousin Jonathan Levinson, unsuccessful armored car robber and escaped felon, last seen in the company of his accomplice Andrew Wells. Now Wells has surfaced in Cleveland (or wherever else suits you), but there is no sign of Jonathan.

Ziva has a few day's leave over Christmas, and decides to visit Cleveland to investigate...

Joyce was once courted by a serial killer robot called Ted. But what if Ted was Edward, a contract killer specialising in the supernatural, in town on business but mixing it with a little pleasure, or using his relationship with Joyce to cover his presence in town? And what if things go further than he intends, and he ends up married to Joyce?

Possible targets include Buffy herself, Angel, Spike, Principal Snyder (someone has to hate him enough to want him dead), Willy (of Alibi Room fame), and of course Mayor Wilkins. If Buffy doesn't kill him, how will she react to him as her stepf...

BtVS / Veronica Mars / Six Feet Under etc.

Following public revelation of the whole Sunnydale thing, Trina Echolls (Veronica Mars) lands the part everyone wants - she's to play Willow Rosenberg in The Sunnydale Story. Other roles include Celeste (Six Feet Under) as Dawn Summers, and any other stars of stage, screen, etc. played by BtVS actors, who will be playing their Sunnydale look-alikes. But there's something odd going on, and soon things take a turn for the sinister...

My preference is for humour with occasional horror, but write it as you prefer.

When Harry Potter's parents were killed Dumbledore and co. decided that the only way to keep him safe was to hide him from the surviving Death Eaters. His muggle relatives were obvious targets, they had to look at other options.

Since Voldemort was looking for a boy, they changed his sex. Since he was looking in Britain, they found relatives in the USA, just close enough for protective spells to work. Finally, they cast memory charms to ensure that the child and her family would never remember that she wasn't originally theirs. They even found a Secret Keeper to guard the spell; a Ven...

There's a very dark side to Willow - what if it comes from her family, and the Rosenbergs are related to the Addams clan? How would that side of the family view her revenge on Warren, and her magic addiction? Could they bring Tara back from the dead, and what would it cost?

(dark) Humour preferred, and preferably no character-bashing.

Harry (or one of his friends) discovers that the Mirror of Erised can show the world as it might be if things were different; for example, if there was no magical community as they know it. One of the worlds shown is another castle, very much like Hogwarts, in which a load of teenage girls seem to be learning to fight monsters. So whoever is looking starts to study their techniques, hoping to find something to use against Voldemort, and gets glimpses of stuff like Wicca magic, maybe starts to fall in love with someone glimpsed through the mirror.

The problems are first that it's entir...

Cordelia... it's an interesting name, what if it ran in the Chase family? And a distant descendent of a cousin still has the name, now Cordelia Vorskosigan nee Naismith, mother of Miles Vorskosigan.

It might be VERY tempting for the Ascended Cordy to check up on her family from time to time, as well as keeping track of the distant descendents of the Scoobies and fang gang. And, of course, their paths might cross now and again... Not asking for anything in this apart from an interesting plot. Any ship or none, any genre, I really don't care.

Before writing this you really need...
